It has been an exceptional week of sport for TES sports teams. Following on from the fabulous BSME U13 triumph at the weekend there was plenty of sports action. The U13 boys basketball team continued their superb form beating KES to secure a top place finish in the league stages. The girls volleyball team also finished top of the league after 2 super victories this week against NES and KES. In KFSAC the Y5/6 boys benchball team was outstanding in winning the trophy for a 6th consecutive year and to top off the week the Y3/4 benchball team also won the KFSAC competition for the 4th consecutive year, performing superbly well. It has without doubt been a week to remember for TES teams and everyone involved should be very proud of the sporting standards that are being set.

They were down 3-10 in the first set but managed to pull it around to win 25-20. The second set was more comfortable and TES won the game 25-17 with some good serving and in particular good play from Mia who was named player of the match.
